Lance Armstrong's Stroke

This week on the blog we're going to do something slightly different and look at the stroke of 7 Time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong. Some of you may already have seen that a clip of Lance's stroke appeared on Youtube about 10 days ago taken whilst swimming in the ocean in Kona, the venue for the Hawaii Ironman.

We know many triathletes are extremely excited at the possibility of Lance racing in Kona this October, so we thought we'd critique the clip, highlight the strengths of how he swims and maybe even provide a few pointers to tweak up the stroke a little.

Paul Newsome runs his analysis here:

Swim Smooth!
